Computer Issues Repost !

My computer is in the shop, and we all know how fun the library is with a toddler , enjoy this old post ! I will be back online Thursday

Drum!

  1. Gather your materials. You will need an old beverage mix container, or coffee can. We are using a huge Lemonade can because my husband drinks far too much of it. You will also need some tissue paper, glue, some tape, a pastry or paint brush and a small plate or plastic lid.
  2. Tape or glue down the plastic lid to the drum.
  3. Pour some glue onto a plastic lid or plate , you will be brushing on the glue with the paint brush .
  4. Have your child paint on the glue. I was shocked how well my little guy did, as long as no glue was dripping off the brush he didn’t even try to eat it. Normally he has a hankering for glue.
  5. Cover the can in big pieces of tissue paper. I used a dark color so you couldn’t see the writing on the container but if you are using a container that is free of all that you can skip this step.
  6. While your child is covering the can with big pieces, cut out some smaller pieces of tissue in contrasting colors.
  7. Glue those on.
  8. Let dry.
  9. Start making music! ( I swear my child isn’t always in sleepers, we usually do art in the early am , and he was drumming away right before nap. )
